So this post I am going to show you all the beauty products I bought in America (and before we start there’s a lot). Especially face masks you’ll see in a bit but apparently I went crazy over them! They just have so many different ones in America that we don’t have here! I have that many I probs won’t need any for the rest of the year! Well….. I’m just so excited to try them all out! I’m just going to do some pictures of all the stuff I got with some quick info on them, I will pop some reviews up on here of stuff when I’ve got round to trying them.
So we flew through the night so got to Hawaii at around 6am in the morning! For once luckily I actually slept on the plane! So the island is quite small so it didn’t take us long to get from the airport to where we were staying, which was near too Waikiki. We stayed in an air bnb that my friend had stayed at before, it was a really nice place, really central and easy to get to places and also the host was really nice and friendly and full of recommendations of places we should visit!
So I just got back from America and honestly it is the best holiday I have ever been on I didn’t want to come back at all, I could deffo see myself living there! Literally the best two weeks of my life, along with being the most hectic we fit soooo much into such a short amount of time! Although saying that in a way I am happy to be home being able to just chill and having had some time to relax! I had the nightmare of my first day back at work being Mothers day, anyone who has worked in a restaurant will known how stressful that is!
This post is going to be all about travel beauty! Now if you didn’t already know (I’m sure everyone does now I’ve been talking about it so much) next week I go to America!!! I’m going to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Hawaii and I can’t wait! I am so excited. Then I come home for two weeks then I go away again this time Skiing! I am feeling super lucky and honestly I’m just so looking forward to this next month. So with all this going on I thought what better time to do a post on travel beauty as I was searching around trying to find some things to take.
So these are my staple must have items that I keep in my makeup bag at all times! There are things like eyeshadow, blusher, bronzer and highlighter that I do use every day but as I chop and change these day in day out then I don’t have regular ones that I use every single day! So by no means am I saying this is what you must have or anything like that this is just what I tend to carry around just thought I would tell you guys what I use and what my favourites are!
So these are all my current favourite liquid lipsticks! As you will be able to tell as you start to read I love nude colours. This is just what I always grab for they’re so easy to wear and quick to apply. Although saying this I am trying to branch out and try some new colours and shades. The majority of the lipsticks are liquid lipsticks these are just what I personally prefer to wear. On a little side note something I absolutely love are some of the names! I also wonder who it is that comes up with them…. Also as were starting, hopefully to get round to summer soon nudes are the way forward.
So I’m one of them people who literally never watches proper TV (well apart from Hollyoaks) I just watch everything on Netflix. So I thought I would just do a quick post on what things I recommend you should be watching.
Gossip Girl- So let’s start with Gossip Girl one of the most addictive programs I’ve ever watched! I swear to god once you start it you just can’t stop. I found myself watching it constantly, it’s one of them programs that is just so easy to watch, although saying that there is also always so much going on which makes it a bit hard to keep up with sometimes. It shows the lives of rich kids growing up showing you the struggles of their upper class lives. Based on a young adult novel.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt- Now this show is a little on the strange side I have to admit and the humour is really quite weird but it is so catchy! The main character Kimmy Schmidt has been locked in a bunker for over half her life and upon escaping is named ‘Indiana Mole Women’ trying to escape this name she moves to New York. The program then follows her trying to fit into life here with lots of hilarious and weird obstacles that she has to overcome.
Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air- Come on what is there to say about this really! It’s a classic! I could watch this over and over on repeat all day seriously this is one of the main programs that got me through hours and hours of coursework at uni. With the catchiest theme tune going you just can’t help humming along. Full of whitty one-liners and banter between the characters it takes us back to the 90s, maybe that’s why so many people still watch it today? It has to be one of the best 90s sitcoms.
How I Met Your Mother- Again another classic! A little controversial but I deffo prefer this to Friends, I’m not sure why I just find it easier to watch! Perhaps I over watched Friends as a kid. Although this has so many similarities to Friends I just think it is so much more grown up. Following the story of Ted who is explaining to his children how he met their mother we are taken on trips showing all his past relationships and his time with his friends. With one of the main characters being Neil Patrick Harris come on it has to be good, he is hilarious I love his humour!
Jane The Virgin- So this is one of my current favourite programs, literally it is sooo good! Firstly god someone please get me a guy like Michael he is the cutest! So it is a comedy- drama that is based around Jane (who believes only in sex after marriage) who gets impregnated via artificial insemination. The story follows through her struggles with her finance Michael and the baby daddy Rafael. Honestly I know it sounds super strange and weird but give it a go, I wasn’t sure when I first started watching it but I quickly became obsessed.
American Horror Story- So this one is a little different to everything else on the list and I will admit it does scare me a little at times, it’s one of them ones that I tend to watch with someone else cause I’m a bit of a scaredy cat. Each different season comes with a different theme for example ‘Murder House’ and ‘Aslyum’. It has some seriously creepy moments in it but I do agree that it is a really good program just maybe if you’re like me and get creeped out easy try watch it with someone else.
Full House/ Fuller House- Now I watched Fuller House first and was completely unaware of the original Full House, which when I later found out because of how much I loved and enjoyed Fuller House I went on to watch all of Full House. It’s such old school humour kind of reminds me of like Saved By The Bell or programs similar to that. It’s basically following a family through their lives it also has the Olsen twins it is as toddlers in the original. Fuller House is full of nostalgia from the original which I’m sure for people who watched it when it was originally on (I’m too young for that) it will bring back memories. It also again has such a catchy tune that I just can’t help it I find myself singing along to it every time it’s on.
So after Highlighter my next favourite item of makeup is eyeshadow palettes…. I’m a sucker for pretty palettes especially if the packaging is cute too. Literally whenever I see a new palette launches its sooo hard to resist the urge to buy it! Tbh I’m more of a palette kinda girl then single eyeshadows (there just so faffy and easy to lose), I just find that palettes are more practical and easier especially when travelling and things like that. So I own a lot, I mean A LOT of palettes but below are the ones that I’m drawn to using more than any others. All of the palettes I mention below are quite high-end and not drugstore. In my opinion eyeshadow palettes are one of the things that are really worth splashing the cash on to get the best quality, also they last literally forever so are well worth the money.
So one of my favourite types of makeup, actually scrap that definitely my favourite type of makeup is highlighter! Anyone who knows me will know I am obsessed, there just all so pretty I can’t help myself, they are my biggest weakness when it comes to trying not to spend money. I feel like they really complete a look and my makeup doesn’t feel finished without it. I will admit sometimes I go a little OTT with highlighter but so what, I like it and that’s all that matters who cares if other people think it’s too much. I just love how dewy it makes your skin, it makes it look super healthy! The science-y bit behind it the highlighter draws the light to that bit of your skin creating the illusion of brightness.
